In honor of the upcoming holiday, I wanted to share some cupcakes my sister and I made last Thanksgiving. They are "stuffed turkeys", and we took this idea from the What's New, Cupcake? book. We improvised the large turkey using a large Wilton cupcake pan and followed as much of the instructions that applied.
The basic ingredients are soft caramels, wheat sticks, corn flakes, green food coloring, and green sprinkles. The mound is frosting, but we used large marshmallows cut in half at an angle to stay up. The large cupcake did not need any assistance staying up.
I am not sure what we plan on doing this year, but I know we plan on doing something great for Christmas! I love how the holidays require a lot of baking and I will have time off work to dedicate to this. Let me know what you are baking this year for the holidays.
